The lights are on
With Tekken Tag Tournament 2, Namco Bandai wanted to give players the benefits of having played through a tutorial while making it considerably less dry. The result is Fight Lab, which can be seen in action via this new trailer.
Fight Lab is reminiscent of Soul Calibur's Mission Mode or Mortal Kombat's Challenge Tower, only you'll be building your own Combot character instead of merely unlocking concept art. The customizable bot can be upgraded and then used in matches outside of Fight Lab. As you can see below, the mode has plenty of room for crazy. Highlights include battles against eagles and chickens, a match where strikes remove a character's clothing, and the always popular fights where punches and kicks unleash showers of coins.
Tekken Tag Tournament 2 is set for a September release on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, with a Wii U version to follow.
